Class of 2024

Prior to Business school, I was a marketing professional with experience leading various marketing strategy for brands across different industries with my most recent role being the Brand Manager for Budweiser in Nigeria. However, I wasn’t always in Management. With an undergraduate degree in Microbiology, I pivoted into management and have worked in different roles from Business Development to brand management. My career has been a dynamic ride so far and under-bellying this is my problem-solving skill. I embarked on an MBA at Michigan Ross to fill the gap that exists between hands-on experience and the technical ideologies of business. To gain a wholesome business knowledge that enables me to make decisions from a perspective of understanding the nuances across different functions. Leadership is about decision making and I needed to possess the bandwidth to make quality decisions. In a nutshell, I am here for the whole nine yards. In business. I consider my multi-dimensional experience in STEM and Management a strength which has propelled me this far and if you ever feel like you do not fit in because of your background, I hope my story inspires you to break into new frontiers.

When I am not chasing course work or engaging in enriching club activities, I spend my time rejuvenating through yoga.
